A Tweaking I Will Go

Before putting Ned aside to finish the sports rug knew I had to make a decision on what to tweak.  Something was bothering me, actually a number of places on the rug did but couldn't put my finger on just what to change.

* wonder if all the triangles should be the same color

* should the triangles be outlined in gold
* was it the purple flower outline bothering me
* or was it the pale grey strip in the butterfly and flower petals
I think the gold outline on the triangle will be a good move and will do that to all triangles today.  Decided to pull out the purple flower outline and use the same wool as the hooked word NED, thinking it would balance out better.  But something still isn't right.
Next tweaked was the gold outline of the center of the flower and replaced the dark gold with the brown red of the border.

Perhaps I should concentrate on finishing the borders, outlining the triangles and then decide what to do next.

But after my quota of caffeine and breakfast, there is grass to be cut before more rain comes.  After all the rain my grass is unusually high and thick so must be cut today.  

Happy Sunday to you all and glad to have you visit.



  1. The title of this post cracked me up. Ummm is it possible Ned's bridle is too bright a red for the rest of the colors in the rug? Just a thought.

    1. That has lots of merit and I'm thinking of what to use instead.

  2. Doesn't it drive you crazy when you feel like something is off with a design but you can't quite put your finger on what it is... Happens to me often. Love your Ned rug. I agree with Jacqueline ....perhaps a black bridle would pull it all together. :)

  3. Hi Saundra,
    I love your idea of the gold outline and as to the rest of the rug, I know you will work your magic and it will be just right!! Now I have that song in my head.......!!!
    Enjoy your Sunday!!
    Heart Hugs~

  4. sometimes I need to set something aside and come back to it to see what needs done...liking the gold outline of the corners...

  5. I like the flower much better but maybe the inside of the petal should be more muted along with the butterfly? But what the heck do I know???
    Hugs :)
